WINDSOR, Ont. - Alexander Khokhlachev had three goals and two assists and Jaroslav Pavelka stopped 44 shots as the Windsor Spitfires crushed the visiting London Knights 8-1 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Kerby Rychel, Alex Aleardi and Remy Giftopoulos each had a goal and two assists for the Spitfires (26-31-8), who have won back-to-back games, and Josh Ho-Sang and Emerson Clark scored the others.

Olli Maatta scored the lone goal for the Knights (47-13-5), who dropped their first game in regulation in 10 outings.

Anthony Stolarz took the loss after giving up five goals on 24 shots in two periods of action. Jake Patterson replaced Stolarz to start the third and stopped 2-of-5 shots in relief.

Windsor went 2 for 7 on the power play while London failed to score on six chances with the man advantage.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
